Man accused of drug trafficking in Florida after traffic stop

Being stopped by a police officer can make anyone feel nervous. Most people hope that the stop is for something minor, but it is not uncommon for police to end up taking drivers into custody for some reason or another. If a controlled substance is found in a person's vehicle, that individual could end up facing drug trafficking charges or other serious allegations.

This type of situation recently affected a man in Florida. Apparently, police stopped the man's vehicle for speeding, and for some reason, they had a K-9 unit conduct a "free-air sniff" around the vehicle. This action reportedly resulted in the dog indicating that there were drugs present near the driver's side door of the vehicle. 

Authorities asked the driver to step out of the vehicle and conducted a search. They allegedly found about 80 grams of cocaine, 14 prescription pills and approximately $11,000 in cash. As a result, the man was taken into custody on charges trafficking cocaine and drug possession. The man's age was not given in the report, but it was noted that he had faced similar charges in the past.

Drug trafficking allegations are some of the most serious drug-related charges. The man accused in this Florida incident will certainly want to make sure that he prepares for the legal proceedings that he will face. He does not have to automatically assume that he will face punishment for the accusations made against him as he has the right to create and present a defense against the allegations in a court of law.
